In step four in Arcanoix guide he mentions "mount c C:\ -size 50000".

"mount c whatever"
is a line that have to be placed within dosbox's config file (dosbox.conf). If you open dosbox.conf in notepad you will find this line somewhere below "[autoexec]".

Arcanoix have written "mount c C:\ whatever". C:\ here should be replaced with the name of the folder on your harddive that you wish to use for your DOSBox games. My line looks like; "MOUNT C S:\MS-DOS\games", so DOSBox will treat that folder on my harddrive as C: within the emulator.
Where you wish to place your installed DOS games on your harddrive is up to you, but I would suggest not using C:\

Now the last part is important. "mount c yourfolder -size 50000". The number here equals the number of megabytes that DOSBox will think your drive has on it. At number seven Arcanoix suggests you should use 82000 in cache. To fit that amount of cache you need to make DOSBox think your harddrive is larger than this cache. Try setting the size to 250000 instead. Just be sure you have that amount of data left on whatever partition you choose for your dosgames.

If this doesn't work, I do not know what to do to be honest.
